Halftime: Steelers 17, Raiders 14

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 23rd, 2012 at 3:00 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Shaun Suisham kicked a 33-yard field goal at the gun to give the Steelers a three-point halftime lead.

It was a downer for the Raiders in that less than two minutes before, Carson Palmer’s 3-yard pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey tied the score at 14. The Raiders capitalized on a Pittsburgh turnover _ Desmond Bryant forced a Jonathan Dwyer fumble at the Pittsburgh 40 _ to get the score even.

Oakland’s dilemma in the second half will be to slow Ben Roethlisberger, who completed six passes for 64 yards in the two-minute drill as Pittsburgh regained the lead. Pittsburgh went into the half with more than 200 yards passing.

    The Raiders are the weakest team in the AFC west, and the AFC west is the weakest division in the NFL. Therefore, the Raiders are the WEAKEST TEAM IN THE NFL!!!!!
    This game is garbage. 0 3rd down conversions in the first half!!!
